Core Values

We are on a mission...

To love God, love one another, and love the city we call home.

We are on God’s redeeming, restoring, reconciling mission together. We love with God’s love. We enjoy diversity. We demonstrate care and compassion. We extend Jesus’ invitation for all to “come.” We’re doing our best to love the people of Cincinnati into a relationship with Jesus.

You’ll find these values woven throughout everything you experience at the Vineyard:

Worship

Worship is why we exist. When this is understood, then everything else in the Bible and the stuff of life starts to make sense. We gather to offer God the worship He deserves. His presence propels us to live lives of worship every day. IT’S ALL ABOUT GOD.

Acceptance

We’re on God’s redeeming, restoring, reconciling mission together. We love with God’s love. We enjoy diversity. We demonstrate care and compassion. We extend Jesus’ invitation for all to “come.” We’re doing our best TO LOVE THE PEOPLE OF CINCINNATI INTO A RELATIONSHIP WITH JESUS.

Growth

The norm for every believer is to be intentionally engaged in the supernatural process of becoming more like the people God created us to be. Healthy things grow. This happens primarily through the study of God’s Word, cooperation with the Holy Spirit, and relational connection with other believers. GOD LOVES YOU JUST AS YOU ARE, BUT TOO MUCH TO LEAVE YOU THAT WAY.

Serving

Jesus said that in His kingdom the greatest are the ones who serve. We serve each other. We serve in our church. We serve our city. We serve the hurting. We serve the poor. We serve the spiritually lost. SMALL THINGS DONE WITH GREAT LOVE WILL CHANGE THE WORLD.

Generosity

When we live selfless, generous lives, it speaks to everyone around us of the real life change that is happening in us. It’s the basis for all evangelism and all missions. Because of God’s generosity, WE’RE GIVING AWAY TO THE WORLD WHAT GOD HAS GIVEN US.

Being Together

We were made for relationship and community. There’s something good about being together. The Church is described as a body and as a family. God shows up in unique ways when we gather in groups large or small. LIFE IS BETTER DONE TOGETHER.

Vineyard Cincinnati is a place of acceptance and love. A place where you can grow in a relationship with one another and with God.
